Modern & Contemporary Prints

29th April 2021


Prints have always been an integral part of our activities at Osborne Samuel gallery. Most of us at the gallery began our careers in the world of original prints and thus there has always been a passion for them at the gallery.
This online catalogue covers two fairs in May 2021; the London Original Print Fair that annually takes place at the Royal Academy of Arts this year becomes London Original Print Week from 1-8 May. Thirty-three dealers/publishers are showing at various gallery locations in and around London. See for the latest updates.
The second fair is an online fair of the International Fine Print Dealers Association from 14-28 May. This fair usually takes place in New York each autumn in late October. Regrettably, both this and the London fair has been cancelled again this year.
We deal in original prints, predominantly British, and each work in this exhibition is an original work of art. The exhibition has been curated to show the diversity, originality and technical expertise evident in so much of 20th century printmaking. We have laid out the catalogue in various sections to give an approximate chronological order to the development of printmaking in the 20th and 21st centuries. As always condition reports are available on request, and in many cases we have other prints by the artists included in the exhibition. Our website, is always a good place to look.
